UPDATE: Celebrating UC Success Announces Essay Contest Winners
Date:5/12/2008

tly celebrated her 60th birthday,

a milestone which she saw as distant and jeopardized when she was

diagnosed with UC at the age of 39. Looking back now, Maureen feels

that she was fortunate to have the guidance of a compassionate

research devoted to curing UC, and the support of a terrific family.

she has found that the keys to living successfully with UC are prayer,

education, the right foods and medication, exercise and a good sense of

-- Patty Kunze, from Cape Canaveral, Fla., remembers that less than eight

pain and uncertainty about her future. But after learning how to manage

her UC, she feels that she is no longer a UC patient first and
